Editorial Reviews

Review

This is the first book I have ever read on anchor charts for 3-8 students. The charts are POWERFUL and really make an impact on instruction. I was lucky enough to watch Dr. Linder teach my own students, using two of these charts. the kids were glued to her! They used the chart as a visual aid and still beg for her to come back. Now, I create or refer to an anchor chart with every mini-lesson. If you aren't using charts with your students, you are missing a powerful instructional tool. Chart Sense can show you how!
-Natalie Casey, fifth grade teacher


Chart Sense is amazing! Roz takes all of the literature and informational text standards and shares tons of anchor charts that go with each chart. She includes lessons, book titles, and helpful hints for EVERY reading standard. This is my new go-to resource for teaching reading. It is simple, easy to use, and offers so much help. I wish I had this on the first day of school!
-Sarah Gladstone, middle school teacher

From the Author

This book has been such a labor of love! Each chart in this book was created with real students in real classrooms across the nation. I am so thankful for all of the wonderful middle school and elementary school teachers that let me into their classrooms to work with their students. The Common Core reading standards are made plain and simple for students through the use of visual aids. I hope that this book is a starting point for all reading teachers charged with simplifying and demystifying the standards.
-Dr. Roz

So, I am trying to tackle "Common Core!" Don't get me wrong, I don't mind CC, but unlocking/understanding the standards for myself AND making them accessible to general ed and special ed students has proved to be a difficult task. Well, Dr Linder has somehow found a way to turn Common Core into Common Sense. I have a copy of this book and her CC guidebook, and to be completely honest it is my go to when I am creating daily lesson plans/unit plans, AND I also use the resources when I tutor after school! Get this book, make HUGE versions of the charts, and watch your students refer to them! I even catch my students with significant learning disabilities referring to the charts... Good Job Dr. Linder...keep the books coming!!! Thanks.

This latest book from Dr. Roz Linder is a valuable resource to any classroom teacher. The systematic way she organizes the book is a true representation of how to scaffold readers in the classroom. The photographs provide a visual that ALL teachers want to see! Without a doubt, if teachers use this book to support their ELA standards the shared learning experience will support any type of learner. The instructional connection is clear to enhance the literary and informational standards. As a teacher who has used anchor charts for several years, the children feel more connected to the instruction they helped create. I can't wait to share this with fellow teachers!

I am in love with this book. Students are such visual learners and this book is full of charts to help cement learning in students' minds in respect to the Common Core Standards of Literature and Informational Text. I guarantee this is a book that will be on my desk daily as I look for appropriate charts to guide my students through all of the anchor standards for reading.

Dr. Roz has done it again! Chart Sense is one of the most practical and helpful Common Core books available to classroom teachers. It is an essential part of my CC library and works hand-in-hand with Dr. Linder's other books on CC. This one breaks down each organizer into simple steps and makes it easy to apply to any lesson. It is a must have for any content area teacher!!

I purchased this book for myself, and just purchased another for our professional book collection at school. It is thoroughly aligned to and organized by the CCSS. I know the teachers I work with are going to be thrilled to have it as a resource.

I completely love all of the work by Dr. Linder. I was the teacher that struggled with teaching reading and writing. I am so much better because of her books. My students are so excited about writing and this has never happened in my five years of teaching.
